North Korea Caught Funding Nuke Program Via International Cyberwar

You won’t believe how much they took!

When it comes to the global community, there are a number of nations out there that you just can’t trust.  China, Russia, Iran, and Saudi Arabia come to mind right away, of course, especially when we look at the world through the lens of the American people.

But we can’t forget about North Korea.  Despite the nation’s minute size and predictable flailing, the DPRK is still as sinister as ever, continuing to pursue all of the pursuits that the world has told them not to, and they are doing so in increasingly dastardly ways.

North Korea’s “total theft of virtual assets from 2019 to November 2020 is valued at approximately $316.4 million,” according to one unidentified country, the panel of experts monitoring sanctions on the Asian nation said in a report sent to U.N. Security Council members Monday.

Even wilder:  This is a much smaller take than in previous years.

The theft, while significant, is less than the $2 billion in assets North Korean hackers stole in 2019 to fund its nuclear capabilities, according to the panel.

North Korea’s relationship with the United States had briefly improved in the early days of the Trump administration, but Kim Jong Un and company have since resorted to their prior poor behavior.
